Just Magnolia and colour create card!

Good morning all. Well the sun is shining here in Leeds, West Yorkshire, but I don't know how long that's going to last for! I had some me time yesterday whilst my OH was at work and I managed to get into my craft room for a few hours. I also recieved my blog candy that I won from Michelle and some yummy Gorjuss images from the lovely Sheila, and I got the new edition of craft stamper which has the gorgeous cute sugar nellie owl stamp. Lots of new crafty bits to be playing with!
Here is a card I made yesterday, which combines the Just Magnolia sketch this week, a fabby sketch by the wonderful Rach, and the colour creat challenge which is to use the colours of the rainbow!


This tilda image is my new stamp that I won in Michelle's blog candy and it is the only Magnolia stamp that I own! I colored her with a mixture of distress inks and whispers before cutting her out onto a circle matt made with my nesties. The papers are from the sweet nothing range by papermania and I have faux stitched around the edges of the pink paper. CS is coredinations. Sentiment is from hero arts. The ribbon is also from the candy I won from Michelle. The flowers are Prima and the pearl brads are papermania {LOVE these!!}.

I don't normally use such a wide spectrum of colours on one card but i'm pleased with how this one has turned out, it feels so colourful and summery!

Well I should really think about getting dressed, and then I'm off back to my craft room {after I've stopped by all your blogs to see what you've ben up to!}!

Have a great sunday everyone and thanks for stopping by to visit!

Hugs, Vicky -x-

This is delish Vicky! I really love this layout and the bright colours you have ombined so successfully.

I got my Kraft card from Sarah's Cards. I'd seen it there ages ago but wasn't prepared to pay £3.95 P&P! Fortunately, they have now reduced it to £1.95 for purchases under £10 - much more sensible! ~♥~
